Forum: netlabels Subject: Treetrunk-- Trash Everest

I am interested in some sonic ideas. One idea is to take something small or ordinary and make it sound much larger than it is. Kind of like the principle George Lucas used when he glued together hundreds of model kits to make his original "Death Star". Another is to pursue textures and surfaces, and I am especially interested in pieces where textures and surfaces continue to shift.
"Trash Everest" involves these ideas and more. A single bag of trash was used to create ever-shifting layers of sound. Paper and aluminum were the two main ingredients-- castaway objects any one of us could obtain at any time.
